Our Insurance and Valuation Coverage
Sweet Lemon Moving Services is a fully licensed and insured moving company.
Please understand that there are inherent risks while moving physical property.
Purchasing the additional INSURANCE COVERAGE prior to your move will provide you with additional property protection past the legally required 60 cents per pound included in BASIC STANDARD
If we are responsible for damage to your property, we will do our best to make you happy before we leave your job. If unable to come to an initial agreement, we will resolve issues through our insurance company. In this event, the settlement will be based on the level of coverage you choose before your move. Your choices of VALUATION COVERAGE are as follows:
1) Basic Standard Valuation required by CPUC is included in your estimated price at the rate of 60 cents per pound. This option provides 60 cents of coverage for every pound the damaged item weighs. For example, if a 100 lb item gets damaged, then the customer would receive $60 towards repair or replacement.
2) Actual Cash Valuation may be purchased at a cost of $150 for up to $25,000 of coverage and takes into account depreciation. It covers assessed value and has no deductible. Under this coverage, if we were to damage any item, an assessor would come out and place value on it taking its age and wear into account. We would be responsible to pay this assessed value. Please request actual cash valuation prior to your move if desired.
Useful Hint: Be sure to check your homeowner’s policy to see if it covers damage in transit. If you aren’t sure about what is and isn’t covered – ask your insurance company.
Sweet Lemon Moving Services cannot assume liability for boxes we did not pack or fragile items left unpacked.
